Best Naan EVER!

Anyone who visits this tiny island should try all the different food from the various ethnic groups: Malay, Indian and Chinese. I’m a Malay but I LOOOVE Indian food.

In search of breakfast, I wandered around just outside Matahari-Kuta departmental store  and came across a few men manning their pushcart.…
